Decrees and Proclamations
By Paul Keith Davis

On the morning of December 24, 2004, as I was being awakened from a dream, I heard a scripture being recited directly from the Bible. It was Isaiah 51:15-16 saying,

“For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and its waves roar (the LORD of hosts is His name). “I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, “You are My people.”

Naturally, living in Orange Beach, AL, this passage immediately had a measure of significance. Just three months before, on September 16, Hurricane Ivan devastated our hometown with a 25 foot wall of water. Even now, almost two years later, our area is still in recovery mode.

Even so, this strategic scripture had even greater meaning two days later. On December 26, 2004 an event transpired that caused me to look at verse 15 in and entirely new light. On this date the tragic Asian tsunami took place. The seas truly were stirred and the waved roared in an unprecedented way.

I was not able to forecast the Asian tsunami from this dream, but the fact that the tsunami occurred provides incredible affirmation that the truth resident in verse 16 is a present word.

End-Time Impartation

This particular passage has been one the Lord has utilized often through prophetic experiences to illustrate a function of His end-time army. The Bible promises that He will put a prophetic word in our mouths that is full of both life and power. This word comes directly from His heart and establishes the revelation of His kingdom.

Furthermore, when this impartation takes place it is fundamentally necessary that it be pronounced from an atmosphere of spiritual anointing. He said, “I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand. The overshadowing of His hand is the forum from which decrees and proclamations must proceed. Mary was overshadowed by the power of the Most High and her agreement with Him was creative.

This is an illustration of His anointing for power and authority. When this takes place it is the consolidation of the Word and Spirit that will not fail. It will accomplish every purpose for which it is intended.

According to Isaiah 51:16, when the Lord puts His Word in our mouths and covers us with the shadow of His hand, the resulting prophetic directive is intended to do three things:

1. To establish the heavens
2. To found the earth
3. To say to Zion, “You Are My People.”

A Prophetic Commission

The prophet Jeremiah was once privileged with an incredible face-to-face encounter with the Lord. The Prophet records that,

the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant —Jeremiah 1:9-10

As it was with Jeremiah, Kingdom authority has been delegated today to accomplish the same purpose and model as in his day. We are being appointed with spiritual oversight to root out, pull down, destroy and overthrow, but also to build and plant. That is the directive of Isaiah 51:16.

What is established in the heavenly places will be released on the earth. When this takes place there will be a calling out of the bridal company to take her rightful position of power and authority for the great harvest. The Holy Spirit is speaking to the seeds of destiny resident in the Zion company saying, “you are my people.” We will be identified as bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh to accomplish the same mandate given to Him by His Father…to bring the message of redemption and to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

On Earth as in Heaven

The attributes of the spiritual atmosphere surrounding a region dictates the characteristics that region demonstrates. For instance, if spirits of witchcraft and sorcery predominantly occupy the heavenly places over a region then many of the people living under that jurisdiction will be captured by these spirits. Likewise, if an open Heaven can be achieved over a territory, then righteousness and truth will flourish. Many souls will be won through a fruitful harvest and God’s people will walk with Him in fellowship.

The videos we have seen of the cities that experienced transformation are clear evidence of this reality. We have watched South Americans cities previously bound with corruption become totally renewed spiritually and naturally. Even the vegetation responded to the revelation of God’s kingdom with fruits and vegetables produced in unparalleled ways.

Our Mandate

Many Christians are being positioned to experience this commissioning. The Lord is stretching forth His hand to fill our mouths with decrees and proclamations direct from His heart. Like Jeremiah, the anointed words of God’s people will uproot the forces of darkness and plant the revelation of His Kingdom. When this takes place there will be an abundant harvest of souls and the Lord Jesus will begin to receive the full measure of His great reward. (Revelations 5:9)

We are presently living in a season that will be identified with spiritual breakthrough. A Heavenly host has been assigned to us in this task. Our responsibility is to articulate the Lord’s desire through His anointing to establish the revelation of His Kingdom. The battle is won in the Spirit first then manifested in the natural. This is our strategy for corporate breakthrough.

The Process of Personal Break Through
By Shawn Bolz

I was in deep sleep unaware that outside my dreams there was a raging storm here in Alabama. Lightning split the sky at a rate that my west coast eyes were not used to and I believe it was used to affect my dream. In this night dream I saw a flash of light and a man appeared in the light; it was an angel from heaven with the appearance of a strong man. He appeared next to a human male who was waiting for Heaven to respond wholeheartedly. Then another flash came and there were two praying men and four angels.

The next flash came and there were two men, a woman, two children, and twelve angels. Then flashes started so rapidly with people and angels appearing and multiplying that I could not keep up with the numbers. All that I knew is the light of Heaven was actively shooting towards the earth and there was divine placement happening.

I awoke to the outside lightning storm and I knew I had just witnessed the emerging generation of revivalists getting divine helpers from heaven assigned to them for personal break through so they could help break a generation into the fullness of God.

The Revivalists Are Coming!

Although the term revival is often overused and exaggerated in emphasis, there is a generation of revivalists coming up out of the wilderness right now. These revivalists are not going to be the stereo type hyper-charismatic personalities that are just known for preaching a fiery message to stir up the masses. These revivalists are going to be empowered to bring individuals, regions, countries, continents, and the world into a true conversion experience to look like what God desired from the beginning: A full manifestation of His nature on the earth through the ones He loves: us.

When I was praying about this generation I saw a process of personal breakthrough. It starts with a spiritual awakening to the kingdom of God. Then this causes a desperate hunger that we might decrease so He can increase…a hunger for the fruit of heaven to come. Then there is a preparation like Hebrews 12 talks abou; preparing us to touch the mountain of God (Hebrews 12:22).

Then the Lord comes with an impartation that installs the nature of Christ (2 Peter 1:4) into us. Lastly, there is a manifestation of Christ through us to the world by which He is seen in us to bring; 1. Awakening, 2. Desperation, 3.Preparation, 4.Installation, 5.Manifestation.

I believe that there are those who have been in this process and are about to receive their breakthrough in an unprecedented way which will cause an awakening all over the world.

True revival is sustained by the lives who are constantly transforming into the image of Christ. If you remove this element of the Holy Spirit changing and transforming us then you remove the power of the revival. If you want breakthrough then you are asking for this kind of process. If you go through this process you are going to go through radical transformation and change.

When Bob Jones and Paul Keith released the word about the angel named “Breakthrough” I felt a very strange momentum come upon me. I felt very aware that the breakthrough these angels have come to help us with has never been opened this way before.

I began to ask myself, “Is this what the men who first broke the sound barrier felt when they were up in the sky trying?” That is the picture I keep getting. What if we are going to break the barrier of the spirit realm? What if we are breaking through into Heaven in such a real way that the heavy glory comes upon us like generations have dreamed about and prayed about? Some generation is going to do it; break into the end time anointing, why not us?

The Scroll With Wings

As I have been anticipating breakthrough even for our event in July that we are hosting here in Alabama, I have been pondering steps we may need to take in order for this to come. I was praying and began to think of the repentance we may need to do here geographically, and of strong men that have yet to be broken, I was interceding and saw again a vision I had in February of a scroll flying towards me. It had large graceful wings that were white and when it got close it had the scripture Romans 9:16 upon it:

It does not therefore depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.

We are in a season of standing on this word, that His mercy, not our effort, will make a way for His desire. I believe this truth revealed can help many who feel they need to work for what Jesus has already paid the price for…breakthrough is coming because its on heaven’s time table to come right now.

A Call To Intercession
By Wanda Davis

The king of Israel sent to the place about which the man of God had told him; thus he warned him, so that he guarded himself there, more than once or twice.
Now the heart of the king of Aram was enraged over this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, “Will you tell me which of us is for the king of Israel?”
One of his servants said, “No, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom — II Kings 6:10-12

When the enemies of God’s people plotted and planned evil things against them, He often times revealed those strategies to His people through the prophetic anointing. His goodness continues to reveal key insights essential for our well-being.

A Prophetic Warning

On the morning of April 26th, I had a dream in which I was given insights and initiatives for prayer. In the dream I was taken into a hospital where three young girls took me by my hands along with two other men. They wanted us to pray with them for their parents not to be taken by a spirit of death.

Immediately following that, I was transported outside the hospital. There was a presence in the dream that I believe to be an angel of notable authority assigned to us for this battle. He was with me to show what was approaching the hospital.

As I looked up I saw a cloud of darkness called the “spirit of death”. I saw the face of the Heavenly presence with me and he spoke to the cloud of death and declared, “Halt”. Following that directive, I then pointed to the cloud of darkness and said, “No.” The cloud stopped moving and did not proceed any farther.

When I awoke from the dream I felt a strong inclination to discuss the dream with Bob Jones. Therefore, I whispered a prayer for the Lord to have Bob call us if I was to share it with him. Within a couple of hours our telephone rang and it was Bob; with that affirmation I knew the dream was from the Lord.

Interestingly, Bob told me he had a similar dream the previous night. He saw a cloud of “fog” coming with the enemies desire to attack people with high fever and sickness. This plot would be especially dangerous for those 50 and older.

In his dream Bob touched the foreheads of the people afflicted to discover they were very hot. He then began to rebuke the demonic “fog” of sickness and told the people to drink an abundance of cold water.

Clearly, this is an evil strategy that we have authority over through the blood of Jesus. However, it is also being revealed through two witnesses so that we can become aware of it and release intercession as a counter strategy. We must cry out now with a corporate voice and say, “NO”. In the dream I was shown that when two come together and declare “Halt” and “No” the cloud of darkness will be stopped.

Naturally, these things are revealed by the Holy Spirit so that we as people of prayer can release God’s authority with precision to overcome enemy strategies. Christians should not be gripped with fear over the many news reports of various illnesses and sicknesses permeating this age. We are simply to be mobilized and armed with the revelation of God’s Word. We ask you to please begin to pray with us.

WhiteDove Ministries “Releasing Breakthrough” Conference

Of the many articles we have released over the years, none have received the circulation our response that our recent article entitled “Breakthrough Revival” has received. These are indeed exciting times! Our years of intercession and grooming are about to become fruitful through the impartation of God’s grace and his provision for breakthrough!

We are extremely excited to announce that we as a ministry will be hosting a conference July 23-25 in Daphne, AL with the theme “Releasing Breakthrough.” We all felt this revelation is so important and a “NOW” word that the conference is a heavenly directive. We have all made itinerary adjustments to make it happen. Our speakers will be Bob Jones, myself, Randy Demain, Shawn Bolz and John Kilpatrick. JoAnn McFatter will be leading worship.

This will be the first time that Bob, Randy and I will be together as a threefold cord to release each portion of our revelation concerning “the Angels that Gather” and the angel called “Breakthrough.”

We invite you to join us in this endeavor to see “Breakthrough” released individually and corporately. Further information concerning the conference can be obtained from our web site, http://www.whitedoveministries.org/content/BulletinItem.phtml?art=279&c=
or by telephone — 251-943-9669.

Registration will begin May 7, 2006 either online or through the telephone number provided. We would encourage early registration as space will be limited.

Prophetic Sound-Bits

Bob Jones called this week and felt a special emphasis from the Lord on certain aspects of the 2006 Shepherd’s Rod that he felt we needed to reiterate. It was with much enthusiasm that Bob shared how many of these directives have already generated fruit both spiritually and naturally. The Lord is doing a quick work! Things are being escalated in order to align us with God’s purpose. We trust you will also be encouraged and activated from this emphasis.

From Shepherd’s Rod 2006…

Nashville will continue to be a focal point and a strategic city. There is a special grace being extended for songwriters and musicians to capture spiritual truth and convey it.

This will result from the same stream of creativity that is coming to the Church in the form of worship. Nevertheless, this form of music will have positive and beneficial messages sent in the Nashville arena.

Sing a New Song

The Church should look forward to mightily anointed songs that have never been heard on earth to emerge from the worshipers. The treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden in Christ are accessible to be released through psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.

This will be revelatory truth that eye has not yet seen nor ear heard. These new sounds have not yet entered into the heart of man. Nevertheless, the Spirit of Christ is searching the depths of His heart to bring these realities into this present day.

When this occurs there will be a spirit of deliverance that accompanies the new sound. Many people will be set free from addictions, oppressions and infirmity simply by apprehending God’s heart in this atmosphere of God’s anointing that will be created by this fresh deposit of worship. They will be songs of deliverance.

And they sang the song of Moses, the bond servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways, King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy; for ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED — Revelations 15:3-4

This new sound will not only remember the works of Christ; it will produce them.

Hidden Warriors

Many of the ones who are called to play a key role in this responsibility are not even known on earth; but they are known in heaven. These spiritual warriors have received the imputed righteousness of God and carry His influence.

They have captured the attention of Heaven and it is now time to arise, like Moses from the wilderness, and exercise their delegated authority.

For a season, David was hidden in the cave of Adullam. When the time was appropriate, he and his mighty band emerged in strength to execute the commission of God. So shall it be with this company.

Although the call is for the entirety of the Church, those that will be used most notably in this battle will be many who are yet unknown in a public forum; but they are well-known before the Throne of Grace. Their reward will be great, once victory is achieved.

The heart of this message is for God’s people to adhere to His standard of righteousness. Purity and maturity will prepare us to carry great mantles of authority needed for this commissioning.

A primary part of our mandate for this season is intercession for our nation and Israel. A deposit of anointing and authority is being allocated for those who will apprehend it.

Although we are focused on the prophetic promises for the future, much will be determined by our willingness to embrace this present responsibility. Winning this battle will lay a platform for the achievement of many prophetic promises granted to us as a corporate body and as individuals.
